A Case Study - Tube Feeding Intolerance in a Complex Infant
Balancing Clinical Judgement and Standard Guidelines
As pediatric dietitians and course creators, we've spent A LOT of time reviewing literature and resources on infant nutrition.
But many of our patients don't fit the "textbook" formula for assessment and intervention. That's where balancing clinical judgement with standard guidelines comes into play.
In this case study, we'll go through our step-by-step thought process in assessing baby Henry's tube feeding intolerance and growth issues. Time to think outside the box!
This webinar is for you if:
✔️ You have limited prior exposure to infant nutrition
✔️ You lack training and/or access to experienced pediatric dietitians
✔️ You want to increase your knowledge and add practical tips to your toolbox
Set aside 60 minutes.
We'll review the case of baby Henry, a complex infant who's admitted due to tube feed intolerance and poor growth. Drawing on years of experience with babies just like Henry, you'll get chance to see how we go about adjusting his feeds, improving his quality of life and getting him back home with his family 💗
